Labor Minister Elizabeth Bourne has announced that some long-term job seekers will receive a bonus of €1,000. It comes to those who are business trained in the professions that hire. “We want (…) job seekers to benefit” from the “very good momentum of the recovery,” the minister said at BFM Business. “That is why we have put in place the additional plan” presented at the end of September worth 800 million euros to train job seekers, especially long-term job seekers, she added.
In this context, “to encourage long-term job seekers to go to ‘company training with a promise of employment,’ they will be given a bonus of ‘1,000 euros’ – half at the beginning, half at the end of the training,” she continued.

Supported Contract Dynamics
She added that the issue is about “encouraging them to go towards these professions that recruit them and also to remove financial brakes”, such as travel expenses. Elizabeth Bourne also praised the dynamics of subsidized contracts, which allow the company to hire a young person away from work (Contracts Initiative emploi jeunes / CIE Jeunes), in which the state takes on “about half of the young man’s wages” (47%). She pointed out that “40,000 contracts of this type have been signed since the beginning of the year” compared to “1,600 contracts in 2020”.
